In 1979 Lucien Rizos set out to photographically document New Zealand. Working in the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Rizos toured the country, carrying his camera and making images of the people and culture that he encountered along the way.

With the example of Robert Frank’s book The Americans firmly in mind, Rizos set out to represent the ordinariness of everyday life in Godzone, while also being aware of the isolation and tensions of social life in New Zealand.
